About Us

The Vermont Oxford Network (VON) is a non-profit voluntary collaboration of health care professionals dedicated to improving the quality and safety of medical care for newborn infants and their families. Established in 1988, the Network is today comprised of over 850 Neonatal Intensive Care Units around the world.

In support of its mission, the Network maintains a Database including information about the care and outcomes of high-risk newborn infants. The Database provides unique, reliable and confidential data to participating units for use in quality management, process improvement, internal audit and peer review.

Health care professionals from member institutions participate actively in clinical trials, long-term follow-up studies and epidemiologic and outcomes research. Members also have the option of participating in the Network's NIC/Q and iNICQ Quality Improvement Collaboratives for Neonatology consisting of multidisciplinary improvement teams working together to identify and implement better practices aimed at achieving measurable improvements in quality and safety.

The Network disseminates the results of its work in Network publications, scientific articles in peer reviewed medical journals and this web site. The Network also sponsors an Annual Meeting for individuals from member institutions and an Annual Quality Congress for Neonatology open by registration to all interested health professionals.
